6-24Middle Park fishing report

Here is your Middle Park fishing report for the week of 6-24-19. The snow cooled things down AGAIN, which does affect the fish.

Grand lake: 45-48 degrees depending on the time of day. All inlets are flushing in a lot of very slightly stained, cold water. Afternoon storms are definitely playing a factor in the water temp as well. Fishing remains pretty decent. Brown and rainbow trout are being caught casting the shallows early in the morning and around the inlets. Minnow type baits and hardware is getting the majority of the action. Lake trout fishing have been hit or miss. Some days are producing and other days seem to be a bit slower. The water temp is playing the biggest factor on how the bite will be day to day. Right now, the main staple seems to be tube jig and sucker meat fished on the bottom. Jake Foos Guide Fishing with Bernie

Williams Fork Fishing Report: Surface temp is 56 - 57 in the early AM reaching close to 60 on a sunny day. Water capacity is 96%. Water clarity is 10 - 15' in the main body. Run off has the inlet very stained, and is bringing debris onto the lake. The Lake Trout bite for all age groups remains good in 45 to 80' on grubs or tubes tipped with sucker meat fished on or above the bottom. Kokanee trolling is pretty much non existent due to low population. Rainbows are being caught lake wide with bait or casting small spinners. The inlet is especially good on Rainbows where the river meets the lake. Northern Pike can be caught in the bays before they move shallow to sun. Slow moving jerk baits or spinner baits are producing hits. Randy H - Guide Fishing with berniekeefe@hotmail.com
